I did remove the faulty VCR tape manually but now I cannot download a perfectly good VCR tape in the slot ... there seems to be an obstruction like the old tape was still loaded. There is a spinner revolving when I first turn the TV on.. Can you help or do I need to take it in for a repair??

I had the same problem so I had to
Open the unit and inspect the cause
A half-round gear was broken so I put
It back together with epoxy and now
Works great! It is labor intensive, but
With a little patience you will do it.
If things get nasty, just throw it away !

SOURCE: Tape stuck and tv turns off

With the set unplugged remove the back and extract the main board. You'll find a metal cover over the tape housing area that is easily removed by removing some screws holding it to the board area and manipulating some wired over it... You should then be able to see the tape and what's hanging it up. If you need to unwrap tape from the pinch roller or around the guides do so carefully. When it all looks free you can either manually crank the load motor assembly to eject the tape or put it back together enough to plug it in and press eject. If you do the later be VERY careful... Good Luck! Bill

I also have a 19" Symphonic tv vcr combo which


The problem is with the vcr section, it is stuck in eject mode thinking there is a tape. This a mechanical problem that might be repairable. The tv and vcr share some of the same circuits, you can try resetting the tray in the out position as if it fully ejected the tape. Now if this does not work it means you have a gear timing problem or bad sensor.

Funai tv/vcr combo has a tape stuck


It shuts off due to an error or mechanical problem, this is a safety feature. Sounds like the gears are worn/stripped and needs to be serviced/replaced. The tape can be remove by opening the unit and manually ejecting it if its important to you.

TV/VCR combo unit trying to eject non-existent tape


The problem is that the loading is out of timing by a tooth. This would explain both the attempt to load a non-existant tape as well as the unit shutting down. This unit needs to be disassembled and the belts replaced and the loading mechanism re-timed. I have done many of these with success. While time consuming because the entire unit must be taken apart, it is not a real difficult repair for anyone that has done them in the past. Where are you located so I can make a referral?

VCR repeatedly tries to play and eject when tape deck is empty


the tape carriage is probably stuck, or something stuck inside blocking the tape sensor.
feed a tape in and see if it does it "with" the tape too

hope this helps

Vcr trouble


this combo unit as far as i know has only one power source which is in the vcr unit. if the vcr has a problem it affects the tv likewise. i beleive u did removed the tape, but unfortunately you misaligned the mechanism of the vcr which will in turn sense an error causing the automatic shuts off of the vcr and likewise the tv. u need to bring it to a qualified service technician if u dont know anything about this.
